Welcome to my webpage.  I am a senior research fellow at The Education Research Alliance for New Orleans which is housed in the economics department at Tulane University.  In this position, I work with a team of researchers analyzing the effects of school reform in New Orleans and lead the development and management of the data warehouse.    

Prior to my current position, I was a senior research associate at The Education Policy Initiative at Carolina which is housed in the public policy department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  In that position I served as one of the lead analysts in an evaluation of the Race to the Top Program in North Carolina.  I also served as the lead analyst on several other grants including an investigation of mathematics double-dosing in North Carolina, sponsored by the REL Southeast, as well as an evaluation of the impacts of early college high schools on student outcomes. 

I am a 2011 Public Policy PhD graduate from the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!) where I studied education policy with an emphasis on how teachers and administrators make decisions.  While at Kentucky, I also served as one of the lead researchers on a grant sponsored by the NSF which evaluated the Appalachian Math and Science Partnership.
